a vacation where friends said that gardener thought he was going to bank roll and she recently lost her job, so she was into this trip. 50-year-old giordano claims gardener never returned from a snorkeling trip they took together. authorities on the caribbean island don't buy it, saying the seas were hardly rough that night. if she did drown based on other drowning cases in the same spot, they believe her body would have been found by now. the there said he gave four voluntary interviews and made two sight visits to the beach and there is no hard proof. the court records in maryland show he had two restraining orders filed against him by women he dated, one claiming he tried to force sex. let's talk about the legal movings. i should add, though, because of the high publicity of the case in aruba, the judge travelled, scott, to the courthouse to the police station, rather, whether detaining him. and see they didn't have to bring him to the courthouse. this thing lasted a couple of hours and a few moments ago, we learned they will hold him another eight days.
the court ordered a dna sampling as well from giordano. what did prosecutors have to show the judge in order to keep the guy locked up? >> the standard is still reasonable suspicion. they had to show the judge something more, more than what they had before, other than the fact that there was a disappearance and the two of them travelled together. between the fbi searching the home as well as additional interviews that were done by people connected to both of them clearly they have come up with something that copvissed a judge that -- convinced the judge he should stay there another eight days. >> let's talk about, that you mentioned the fbi searching his gaithersburg home, something we covered here extense elf. what do you think -- texing -- extensively. i think they were looking for evidence to get a picture of who the individual was. secondly, any communications, any hard drive, soft drive, any computer or i.t. searches on the internet, these are the dating services, good, bad, or uglicenses to determine whether there was a connection either to the victim, the
alleged victim, if you will, or other women that could define, really, what this, what his moist actually was, whether it was real or perceived, good, bad or ugly. >> and some reporting indicated the women in his past, women he dated have claimed he was rough, physical, abusive. one equipmentwoman that i introduced personally -- one woman that i interviewed personally said when she went to his house, she saw cameras everywhere. my guess is they want to see stereo does he have a pattern of abusing women. >> or a pattern of filming women, abusing women or what is his personality when it comes to dating? clearly the things we're hearing are deviate, abnormal to say the least and that helps. but, again, it may be that -- it's not whether he committed a crime or hadding any to do with the a languaged victims disappearance. we have to be careful. you can have a lot of circumstantial evidence by prior conduct and cures are
interested in what is happening in this case. >> and we'll see you again at 10. >> and the big news, gary giordano, the 50-year-old suspected in the disappearance of robin gardener will be held another eight days in aruba. >> the new developments keep coming and go to www.myfoxdc.com for more. >> okay. and i would get to the fox 5 storm force and this is keeping busy. there was a threat of the rain for parts of the area and some gray clouds you probably saw. and gary mcgrady has more now. >> and where it's raining, it's really rains and some is shine coming through in the mid-80s and start with the radar to give you an idea. there say flash flood warning for prince georges county that extends into parts of, basically, the central sections of prince georges county. that is going to go until 7:30 p.m. and look at the heavy rain,
